Whenever I see an odd word in a title that you never hear in common discourse, I always check to see if it is from Catholic source.
One of the things I learned in a discipleship class is to not use “Chrisianese” when sharing the gospel with non-Christians. But I assume these types of articles are specifically FOR Catholics, so now I’ll butt out. :)
“Triduum” just means “the three days,” and refers to Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday.
Thanks, and true, it IS an odd word,not one you commonly hear in conversation. Glad he defined it in his first sentence.
Triduum has been in use in Catholic circles since the celebration of Easter.
So if the word is ancient that doesn’t mean it is irrelevant.
The Triduum is the three holy days before Easter.
Holy Saturday — Vigil of Easter
